Girls Trip hasn’t even hit theaters yet, but Malcolm D. Lee’s upcoming project is already garnering outstanding buzz. The Best Man director’s next flick will be the action-comedy Night School, starring Kevin Hart and produced by Will Packer.

The Universal Pictures film is scheduled to hit theaters in Sept. 2018. Ride Along director Tim Story was originally set to helm the project, but it looks like Lee will now be stepping in.

Deadline is reporting that the film will follow a group of misfits who are forced to attend adult classes so they can pass the GED exam. There is no word yet on who will be joining Hart in the cast but looking at the film’s description, this could prove to be a major ensemble cast with some comedic heavy hitters.

This is the second time that Lee and Packer will work together (Girls Trip is the first collaboration). In contrast, Hart and Packer have been frequent collaborators. The list of films they’ve worked on includes the Ride Along franchise, About Last Night, both Think Like a Man movies and The Wedding Ringer.
